Q & A – Are software packages that let you create your own handbook from a template any good?

Employee HandbookQ. Are software packages that let you create your own handbook from a template any good?

A. Software packages may be a helpful starting point, but very often such software programs are too general or include guidelines and laws that do not apply to the employer. MSEC provides a sample handbook and sample policies, appropriate for employers to use as a starting place for developing an employee handbook. Regardless of the resource used, most guidelines and policies must be customized to meet the organization’s particular needs.
